I put yellow carnations on Bach's grave in Leipzig. Another woman who had brought the pricier stephanotis gave me a slightly superior look; the current kappelmeister
smiled at her but winked at me, because we knew what she did not: yellow carnations were Bach's favourite flower.
Enjoying that warm weather, julymorning? It's like that old song: "When it's cold outside, I got the month of May." Only for you guys, it's "When it should be
cold outside, I got the month of May." Your animals must be loving it.

I goodness I just read the above..............I sound my age + I'll get back in the nana corner now then.
Nay, lass. I've saved bicentennial quarters and pre-1982 pennies for years. Before 1982, pennies were solid copper; now they're just tin with copper plating. The old ones are supposedly worth 1.72¢ now, although still valued at just 1¢. And yes, that is an Abraham Lincoln bank I keep them in.
My grandmother got it in the 50s when she was first married; it was filled with Hershey's chocolate syrup. She said,"Take care of that, I bet it's worth something now." I checked on eBay and there are dozens of them selling for about $10. But I'll let her keep thinking it's an Antiques Roadshow-style heirloom.
